Teaching R-E-S-P-E-C-T through song

What's the best way to teach classroom rules to youngsters? For Dalton Spence, Christel House Jamaica music facilitator, it’s as simple as creating a fun and catchy tune. “There are two main things that are important for the proper running of my music class,” says Spence. “Students need to respect each other and listen to each other.” Being a music teacher, he created a song about the classroom rules and found the children enjoyed it so much they would happily sing along. “It was important not to name them “rules” so I titled the song “How To Be Amazing!” Spence believes in his students. “I use music to develop in them this attitude which I believe will make them successful in any area or subject they will undertake,” he says. He’s proud of the success at Christel House. “In all my years of teaching, I must say Christel House really provides a great learning environment for our most vulnerable Jamaican children.”
